  1. superbe plongée, je recommande vivement le Club
    On à fait 7 plongée avec Nick et Chris, deux sur des sites locaux, sur Sail Rock, Kho tao, et une journée snorkling pour 10 personnes. Tout c’est bien passé, les plongées sont trés belle, bonne visibilité et des poissons colorés partout:-)))
    L’encadrement parfait, tranquille, des gens qui connaissent parfaitement les lieux, super appréciable.Petit déjeuner et repas Thai sur les bateaux, une journée à deux sur un bateau local (que du bonheur..)
    Bref vivement qu’on y retourne….

    • Thank you Hakim – it was a pleasure to dive with you & Damien.

  2. One month gone in a blink! I’d rather be in Chaloklum than were I’m now…lots of snow and freezing cold!! As always, the best team in the best divingschool on the best island! I’ll be back ;)!

  33. [img]/files/2011/10/guestbook/PA000000.jpg[/img]Hi Chaloklum Diving,
    it´s time to leave germany, temperatures are round 0-5 celsius, not that what i really like.
    After one week in egypt ( what a nice boat ) with good vis, but no fish and not the ambient of the chaloklum dive boat ( not impressed of the red sea) —-we want to come back to koh phangan—-

    So long Thomas & Margot

  34. Having said that, our great friends Heinz & Angie should be arriving here at the end of this month to keep Michael company for at least some of the time too.

    All the best to the team, Nick, Michael, Ollie, Gabriele and Stefan.

  36. [img]/files/2011/10/guestbook/oli.jpg[/img]No more Cptn Pat ! Shocker…I thought he was there for the long haul..
    All fine here in sunny England..well finally it’s a bit sunny. Missing the water but hope to get wet again in Egypt soon..
    I was looking for a picture of Pat to post but came across this one instead of another familiar face on the boat…fairly familiar from this angle too.. May require censorship.. or just a set of board shorts..

  37. [img]/files/2011/10/guestbook/duik_2.jpg[/img]If you want a great dive experience, just go to Chaloklum diving.
    It was an incredible day, with top professionalism, so you can enjoy your first dive without fear.
    Nick and all the others, thanks for the good care.
    Next time you may register me for a whole course

    Best wishes

  38. Dear Chaloklum

    Just to say thank you very much for the diving to Sail Rock with Olli, but in particular to Nick and Gabrielle (ciao!) for helping Maria (the Sicilian) to her first diving experience at Ko Mah – she loved it and the certificate is framed with pride. We had a great time and were very well looked after, including amazing curry on the dive boat…

    Hope to dive with you again sometime,

    Patrick Kennedy, Maria Ventura

  48. Back in Montreal, a week after, I’m thinking about last weekend and I want to thank you again for the two perfect days I had diving with you! I really apreciate how you manage to have a boat going out on Sunday for my second day at Sail rock! I’ll recomand you for sure!

    Demande spéciale pour Vincent, lors de notre sortie samedi (28 fév), tu nous as pris en photo sous l’eau. Si la photo est bonne et que je suis dessus, est-ce que tu pourrais me l’envoyer par email? Ça me ferait un tellement beau souvenir! Et merci encore pour la journée, ça tellement bien été que c’est ce qui m’a donné envie de plonger de nouveau le lendemain!

    Au plaisir,

  49. Salut au cousin Vincent !
    Voila une semaine que Koh PhaNgan est loin mais je n’oublie toujours pas cette plongée avec le requin baleine à Sail Rock. Et je n’oublie pas ce petit accent du cousin Canadien.
    A un de ces 4, le monde est petit !

  50. Back home again after 15 wonderful days on Koh Phangan, Chaloklum. Rescue course completed with my very favourite diving school, can not wait to get back for more diving. You are the perfekt team, dive masters, instructors and so…can not be better!!! Thanks to all of you who I had the pleasure of diving/studying with…Nick, Michael, Elliot, Gabriel, Stephan, Kira, Ollie.
    Elliot gets an extra star for the WHALESHARK at Sail Rock on the 4th of feb. The most beautiful dive I have ever had, thank you man !!
    I will be back….

  52. Herzlichen Glückwunsch an Michi zum OWSI


  53. Hi Mike and Nick ! Just showing someone I met your website (trying to drum up some custom for you) and couldn’t help but notice that the truly fantastic whale shark picture you have on your front page is credited to Doug… ahem!

    Anyway, kidding aside, thankyou so much for a fantastic course, and hopefully I’ll see you in the future!

    Thanks, Rory.

  54. hallo ihr lieben, hab mir grad mal eure Homepage angeguckt weil es hier in Köln langsam aber sicher kalt wird und ich wieder zum Mae Had will!

    Bis dann

  55. hallo michael & nick,

    alles gute für euch und beste grüße

    angie & heinz

  56. hallo michael and nick – surprise – your first student ursula!!! had a look at your wonderful website and remembered our start into the underwaterworld with you! now sailing and diving in the caribbean – left last year from france on our sailing yacht KRIL and so happy to be back on the water and in cruising mode. namai, meanwhile lungmai, is astounded that sail rock is still there – so stable, not sailing at all…these thai words..!*# really incorrect…. but good to see that your business is thriving and are hoping you are happy and healthy.
    ahoi and best wishes from
    ursula and michael

  57. uuhhh… it feels really good to have a reason again to post a message!

    Hi Michael, Hi Nick,

    After nearly 2 years, it looks as if I can finally be back to your island and to Chaloklum Diving in Dec! So, be prepared to have one more enthusiastic but still bloody beginner-diver around..

    See you then!

  58. Wir möchten uns für die tolle Betreuung und Ausbildung bei euch in der Tauschule bedanken.

    Nachdem ich anfangs dem tauchen gegenüber etwas skeptisch war, ist es nun zu einem meiner Hobbys geworden, dass ich hoffentlich bald wieder ausüben kann.
    Auch dass wir das Anfängerglück hatten den kleinen Walhai am Sailrock zu sehen war ein unvergessliches Erlebnis.

    Vielen Dank nochmals für alles und viele Grüße an alle die uns kennen.

    Sabrina + Heiko

    P.S. Wir hoffen dass wir irgendwann nochmal zu euch zum tauchen zurückkommen können und werden eure Tauchschule auf alle Fälle weiterempfehlen!!

  59. Vielen Dank, dass Ihr mir Zugang zu dieser unglaublichen Unterwasserwelt eröffnet habt!
    Auch wenn die PADI-Videos sehr überzogen und amerikanisch sind, in einem haben sie Recht: Tauchen öffnet die Tür zu einer anderen Welt – geh hindurch und dein Leben wird nicht mehr das Gleiche sein!

  60. We just wanted to thank everyone at Chaloklum Diviing for our wonderful diving experience and your kindness and understanding of unexpected travel mishaps. Thank you again and we will return to Thailand as soon as we can to dive with you again. Thanks Nick.

    Travis & Beth

  61. Malaysian greetings to all at Chaloklum Divers!

    I wanted to say a massive thankyou to you all and especially Nick for helping me get my confidence back under water- I couldn’t have asked for a better dive master, and have now rediscovered my love for SCUBA.

    Since we left you we’ve done another dive at the Temple of the Sea off the Perhentian Islands- again really cool, and if anyone asks for a recommendation, the Quiver dive school at Senja Resort are pretty good, max 4 divers per guide like you guys.

    Thanks again Nick, we just got the photos- lookin good! xxx

  62. Hello from Canada…hope you guys are all doing great! Getting ready to dive in Key Largo and was thinking of you all. Hey Nick…should I start a Facebook page for you???

    Love to everyone.


  63. I just wanted to say a massive thank you to Kira and Gabriel. I enjoyed every second of my dive course and can’t stop thinking about how I can get back under water as soon as physically possible.

    I can definitely recommend this school to anyone who wants to dive when they are in Thailand.

    I am still smiling when I think about diving …hopefully see you again soon

  64. Hi Chaloklum-dive-team,
    sind wieder gut (bei Schnee!!!) zu Hause angekommen.
    Vielen,vielen Dank für die schöne Zeit auf Koh Phangan und die phantastische Betreuung durch Euer team. So macht Tauchen Spaß: professionelles team, einwandfreies Equipment, gut ausgestattetes Boot mit supernetter, hilfsbereiter Besatzung!
    Speziellen Dank nochmals an Greg, der mir den OWD so souverän “rübergebracht” hat und jede mögliche Unsicherheit gar nicht erst aufkommen ließ.
    Wir werden auf jeden Fall wieder kommen
    liebe Grüße
    Iris + Stefan

  65. Hi! Back home after two great weeks on koh phangan, can’t wait to get back…for more diving!
    I can not think of a better diveschool than chaloklum diving, if you plan to take your license on koh phangan than this is the school to contact!

  66. Hi Kira…

    Kommt ein bisschen spät, aber hatte viel zu tun.
    ich möchte mich noch mal für den wunderbaren Unterricht bei Dir bedanken.
    Den POWD bei Euch zu machen, hat mir richtig Spaß und Lust auf weitere Kurse gemacht.
    Wenn alles klappt, komme ich im Mai wieder zu Euch und möchte mein Advance diver bei Euch machen.

    Bis dahin alles Liebe und viel Erfolg.

    Ron (Germany)

    Rear Kira…
    I know it comes a little late, but had to do much to do.
    I will still say thanks for marvellous instruction to you.
    To make the POWD with you was very funny and make desire on further courses with you.
    If everything folds, I come in May again to you to Phangan and would like to make the Advance diver.

    Up to then all the best and much success.

    Ron (Germany)

  67. [img]/files/2011/10/guestbook/CAMFAR6H.jpg[/img]hi Nick and gang

    Take care en we will think about our trip and the course a lot!
    Niels ‘big lungs’ en Marijke

  68. [img]/files/2011/10/guestbook/DianeNick.jpg[/img]Thanks to all in the Chaloklum diving team for great time in Koh Phangan. The whole family could experience top dives (in particular at Sail Rock!). We truly appreciated the relaxed and professional atmosphere. It was just fantastic!
    On espère revenir encore toute la famille pour de merveilleuses plongées.
    Pierre et Michelle, avec Diane (10), Florian (13) et Sylvain (15).

  69. Dear all,

    We just wanted to let you know how much we miss Koh Pha Ngan and the Chaloklum Divers. Since a week back in cold and rainy Netherlands the images of Sail Rock and Marine Park are still vividly in our mind. Nick, many thanks for the refreshment dive wich made me feel more secure and confident than ever! Joerg, you stole our heart by putting carefully back tiny pieces of coral. And can you also thank the captain who kindly watched our son during our dives while preparing delicious lunches?

    We hope to dive with you soon again and take another look at the National Geografic look a like underwater world of Sail Rock.

    Diederik and Annemarij and Mees

    I ve just found something which may be interesting for Kira and everybody who loves and cares about the endangerd whale sharks: there is a project to collect and identify whale shark data via pictures well, probably you know already anyhow…

    Hope to be back soon. Until then: all the best to you all.

    Well, we finally got some good weather in Denmark, but nothing compared to Thai weather… And damn I miss it alot, we’re planing a trip in november, so we can come back for more diving and do the Rescue-Diver and as we said, we’ll bring a friend or two, so they can have the pleasure of diving and experience Lee’ Garden
    Hope you all get to relax before the season starts again
    Well, I hope you are all having a good time doing what you love. DIVING!

    I just did my OW course with Chaloklum Diving and thanks to Nick and Michael, it was one of these experiences in life, which simply makes you happy.
    I hope, i can come back soon again to do and learn more about diving.

    Thank you, Nick and Michael and everyone from your team!
    Petra (& Helena)

  97. Had a terrific day with the crew here. The water was a little cloudy at times, but they knew their stuff, and made the whole experience really enjoyable. These guys do it for fun and it shows. Thanks!

  98. Hi, habe meinen advanced-schein bei chaloklum-diving (bzw mit michael als persoenlichen lehrer) gemacht und kann michael und co nur waermstens weiterempfehlen! hat viel spass gemacht und gelernt hab`ich auch was. gruesse aus dem wahnsinnswinter markus

  99. Hallo Martin und der Rest der Tauchschule,

    nochmals vielen Dank für die tollen Tauchgänge die wir bei euch erleben durften….insbesondere Sail Rock ist immer wieder beeindruckend. Bei unserem letzten Tauchgang am 16.02.06 hat Elliott noch einige Bilder gemacht. Wäre klasse wenn wir 2-3 davon bekommen würden .

    Bis nächstes Jahr

    Anita und Joe

  100. Hello from Denmark

    Thank you for making my holiday in Thailand the adventure of a lifetime.
    I was only planning on doing the Open Water Course, ended with doing Advanced Open Water and logging 23 dives in only 2 weeks. You made me feel welcome at the school and a part of the “family”!

    Thank you Zsuzsanna for being a fantastic instructor!!!!!
    Thank you to the rest of you. I enjoyed diving with all of you!!!!

    The greatest praise that I can give the school is that I’m coming back in march to do EFR and Rescue Diver.

    So I will hopefully see you all soon!!!

  101. [img]/files/2011/10/guestbook/Chaloklum_diving.jpg[/img]Thank you very much for getting me in the water!
    Me and my son Alexander went to Marine park with you guys on 19th jan-06.
    I´m the nervous woman from Sweden, afraid of everything under the surface…
    I found myself snorkling with the lifejacket on for hours!!!
    Alex enjoyed the day very much,specially jumping from the top of the boat.

  102. Today, I had the best diving experience in my life (so far). Me and my buddy Micael had the privilege of sharing the boat merely with our dive master Elliot, the captain and the boat boy. Since we started out really early we were the first divers to arrive at Sail Rock and during the first dive we had the place pretty much to ourselves. The visibility was great and the underwater life was truly spectacular. We enjoyed school after school of various fish – wonderful.
    The entire Chaloklum Diving crew is friendly and competent. I highly recommend them!

  103. Hi,

    it was the first diving trip in my life and it was a great moment for me to see the underwater world at sail rock. The whole Team is great.

  104. Hi everybody,

    as Martin has already written we had a great time diving thanks to Chaloklum Diving School. We’ll definetely come back here, hopefully this year!
    It would be great if you could send us the pictures you took of us so we can show them to our friends and convince them to start diving as well

    Thanks again for a great experience underwater!

  105. Hi,

    Julia and I very much enjoyed fantastic dives, first from shore (day and night) and then at Sail Rock. Equipment, boat,… excellent; the dive masters and instructors are great. Special thanks to Nick.

    Greetings (from Xi’an, China),

    (P.S.: no underscores in email address!)

  106. Hi Nick and Michael,

    once again let me thank you for your great patience, excellent didactical skills and for a great diving experience.
    Hopefully I’ll come back to enjoy more of your professional courses.

    Greetings from cold Gemany.

  107. Men and Women of Chaloklum Diving,

    Thanks for a great diving experience. I’m glad Ashlee and I found Chaloklum before those other (corrupted) dive schools. I think the good student to instructor ratio was key for an unbelievable experience. Also, you guys really know what you’re doing. Thanks again, especially to Oliver and Szuzannah.

    If you’re ever up for some diving in Japan, shoot me an email.

    Isaac & Ashlee

  108. Hi Nick, Stu and the rest of the team….

    Thanks again for getting me through the PADI course and also for just being a great laugh and making my (very) short trip to Thailand absolutely excellent. Your school really is fantastic and I would recommend it to anyone!

    Hopefully I’ll get to come back to Thailand and see you all sometime soon.


  109. Servus Michael, Hi Nick !

    Herzlichen Glückwunsch zu 10 Jahren Chaloklum Diving School !! Wir werden das gemeinsam nächstes Jahr im April gebührend “Nachfeiern”

    @Zsuzsanna: Gratulation zum Instructor !

    Viele Grüsse
    Angelika & Heinz

  110. Hi Nick, Michael and the rest of the crew!

    Happy Bithday to Chaloklum Diving!!!!
    Congratulations to Zsuzsanna for making Instructor!!!!

    I hope Christmas and NewYears brings you unlimited visibility, whale sharks every dive, no triggerfish bites, loads of divers, and of course good health and happiness!

    Please say hi to everbody.

    Gregus Nauticus

  111. It was a pleasure to dive with you. Thank to Michael for great patience with Joerg.

  121. Guude Michael,

    Nach langer Zeit mal wieder zu Besuch auf eurer Seite. Schöner als beim letzten Mal. Vor Allem die Fotos.
    Wäre schön, wenn du dich mal meldest,
    wegen email-adresse.

    Gruß aus I.-O.,

    De Suhni

  122. Hi Nick, Michael, Greg.
    Danke für euer Link und das Update. Da packt mich gleich wieder die Sehnsucht nach der Insel und der Gedanke den Divemaster zu machen, blüht wieder auf. Leider trauer ich immer noch meiner Pentax 450 nach die mit all den schönen Bildern im Sea Side verschwunden ist. Die wurde nicht zufällig auf dem Schwarzmarkt gesichtet?
    Komme im deutschen Winter wieder!!!

  123. Chaloklum Diving ?!

    Seit vielen Jahren immer wieder
    Sehr gut, zuverlässig und vor allen SICHER !!

    Vielen Dank an Michael, Nick, Elliott, Susanna und Magda !!

    Ihr werdet uns nicht los ! Wir kommen wieder

    Viele Grüsse
    Angelika und Heinz

  124. Hi Ihr Taucher,

    haben uns nun anch 2 Wochen Deutschland wieder etwas eingewöhnt, aber vermissen eure kleine Insel immernoch sehr 🙁

    Vielen Dank nochmal an alle für die super Zeit und die schönen Tauchgänge! Hat uns riesig Spass gemacht! Wir überlegen schon, wo man nun am besten zwischendurch mal tauchen gehen kann, um nicht aus der Übung zu kommen

    Schöne Grüße an alle
    Sarah und Jan

    PS: @ Heinz und Angelika: Wie gemein, ihr wart schneller im Gästebuch

  125. I just want to say that I couldn´t have wished for a more professional intro to diving than I got from you guys at Chaloklum Dive! A familiar feeling and atmosphere that really lets you enjoy every minute of from start to end. I will surely go back next year and get both OW and Advanced cert.

    I wish you all the best and will surely recommend Chaloklum Diving to all my friends!


  126. Love the site keep up the hard work good job.

  127. allet war super tauche jetzt sch 6 jahre und lebe immer noch am rand des subanova

  128. Hey guys hope all is well. Returning to normality is such a bore! Don’t know how much more I’ll be able to take, might be coming back sooner than later. I NEED TO DIVE!! Love to all and wish you all the best in 2005. Tell the girls Emily loved her picture and we that we miss them dearly. Stay in touch.

  129. [img]/files/2011/10/guestbook/img-1105567955.jpg[/img]Hi there,
    Since it’s freezing cold here i was trying to get into meditation to feel as if i was back in Thaïland’s water. Didin’t work well, it is still cold So i’ll just wish you all a good year fill with nice dives, sun, happiness and a quiet mother nature…
    à plus

  131. [img]/files/2011/10/guestbook/img-1104394825.jpg[/img]Hello every one,

    It has been quite a while since we have learnt to dive with you (jan 2004) but it’s still there in our memories. Thanks to Stephan’s patience and professionalism we’re divers now!! Thanks a lot to the rest of you for the friendliness and fun. I could not imagine a better place to learn to dive. Do I need to say more?

    Take care.


  132. [img]/files/2011/10/guestbook/img-1103222430.jpg[/img]Hallo ! Bin durch einen Linkpartner durch Zufall auf Eure sehr informative Seite gelangt und wollte nicht gehen, ohne einen kleinen Eintrag zu schreiben. Wir wünschen Euch weiterhin viel Erfolg und würden uns über einen Gegenbesuch sehr freuen, denn auch auf Teneriffa kann man sehr gut tauchen. Viele Grüße aus Oberhausen

  133. Hi Everybody,

    long time no hear, hope everybody doing great! What a pitty that Robert is leaving, was always such a fun to rap him under the survace hihihi.I was in your school in January2004, still hope to come back very soon, maybe to do my Divemaster, but therefore i need at least 6 month, Nick told me…so first share mony and a lot of time ;)A big hello to your lovley Wife and your Kids , Nick and “Servus” to Michael. Hope i see your guys in the close future!!!

    All the best

    The Bavarian Tattoo Chick 😉

  134. Hi
    Just wanted to say what a great experience I had diving with Chaloklum. It was my first time diving and I don’t think I would have ever got through it without Nick and Elliot’s patience. They helped me get over my fear of the water and I even went on to do my advanced PADI course including a night dive in Indonesia a month later. Great fun!
    Thanks so much and best wishes. Gill

  135. [img]/files/2011/10/guestbook/img-1098131340.jpg[/img]Hallo Michael und Nick, nach über einem Jahr hört Ihr wieder etwas von mir und Miri!
    Sorry, daß ich nicht vorher etwas ins Gästebuch gehämmert habe;ich möchte Euch nochmals für die tolle Zeit danken, die wir mit Euch hatten, macht auf jeden Fall genauso weiter ! Ich wünsche Euch weiterhin alles Gute, viel Erfolg und hoffe Euch 2005 wieder zu sehen, dieses Jahr hat es aus beruflichen Gründen überhaupt nicht mit Urlaub geklappt, deswegen lechze ich darauf vielleicht nächstes Jahr mit Euch auf 10-30m unter null zu gehen !
    Ciao macht´s gut Franky

    !!!! Für alle Interessierten am Tauchen auf Koh Phangan: Ich kann jedem nur empfehlen bei/mit den Jungs von “Chaluklum Diving” abzutauchen, denn hier stimmt für meinen Geschmack einfach alles: Super Tauchlehrer, bei denen man sich absolut in guten Händen fühlt, mit Ernst bei der Sache aber trotzdem zum Totlachen komisch, wenn es drauf ankommt ! Persönliche Atmosphäre, super Ausrüstung, nette Crew an Bord des Schiffes und vor allem keine Massenabfertigung, wie sie in den großen Tauchschulen bis ans Limit, Richtung Lebensgefahr praktiziert wird. Wer bei denen bucht, sollte den Vorabend nochmal richtig chillen, es könnte der letzte sein !? Chaloklum -> Sicherheit + Spaß

  136. hope you guys are ok. Well, this is london, urban, colder and drier (when not raining..) Thanks for the baptism. After 17 years of surfing, it was time to go beneath the surface.
    Next dive for me will be in Tenerife, home, that is.

    All the best,

  137. Hi Guys hope all is going well over there for you, I just wanted to say what a great time i had training with you for my open water and how thorough you were. After i finished i dived with another company in Thailand who were complete cowboys and made me feel very nervous – they didn’t even give time for buddy checks!!!! Elliot should be out there again soon then he’s heading over here to see us. Take care X Marie

  138. hello micha and nick! mir blutet das herz wenn ich mir eure website ansehe…bei euch ist regenzeit, das ist nach 18 monaten ohne einen tropfen musik in meinen ohren. in diesem jahr werde ich nicht mehr kommen koennen, aber ich versuche es sobald als moeglich im naechsten !!!!

  139. Hallo Leute,

    die Seite wird immer besser, schade nur, dass ich es nicht mehr schaffen werde, noch dieses Jahr zu euch zu kommen. Die Regenzeit hat hier in Deutschland auch angefangen, sieht allerdings doch etwas anders aus, als auf der Insel.
    Werde auf jeden Fall im Januar versuchen, den Weg und ein paar Tauchgänge mit euch zu machen.
    Bis dahin euch alles Gute!

  140. hi chaps,
    will be back in ko pha ngan in january.looking forward to more girlfriend is doing her open water course at the mo in england.however, the open water dives look unlikely(near zero water temps!).she will have done all the paperwork and the confined water dives- is it possible to finish the course with you??

  141. Well, I really have to thank all of you at the school. You have introduced me to another amazing world!!

    These guys are chilled lovely people. They organise good value dive excursions and thoroughly safe dive training. Thanx again. (Maybe I showed you a another world Scot, eh???!)

  142. hallo Stephan ,

    Lot and I are back in Belgium after our fantastic 4 months trip!
    Thanx a lto for the pics! they are great! i will send you the one we took.
    It was a great experience and we can’t wait to dive again.
    We didn’t go to your friend in Vietnam because Lot had some earproblems.
    Thanx again!Have fun!

  143. Hello to Mr. Toe…… and all the others I could

    Gruss, Alex und Sandra aus Offenbach

  147. Nick and Michael: Had a wonderful time over Christmas and New Years and was happy to see how professional your operation is and how smoothly it runs. It was nice to dive with people that put safety first. We have passed along your dive site to several people already and highly recommend you to everyone we meet.

    Happy birthday to Scott for February 24.

    Best wishes from Canada, Lee and Colin Andrews

  148. Nick Michael Scott Emily

I’ts more than a year since you brought me and Sue out for our first dive, and now i’m well kited up to brave the cold waters of Ireland. Nice, but will have to come and feel the sun again soon I hope.,

  158. [img]/files/2011/10/guestbook/img-1054881839.jpg[/img]Hi Nick – I LOVED staying in Chaloklum for a week and Bottle Beach for 4 days saw the end to my month away with complete stress-free enjoyment.

    Thanks for your kind hospitality after our 4-person trip out to Sail Rock… How luxurious!!! It was my first dive in Thailand, and I’ll be sure to return. Maybe Marine park next time.

    Good luck with the position you’ve advertised. Whoever takes it will be one lucky guy or gal!!

    All the best, Michael Van Leeuwen, St Kilda, Melbourne

  159. He Nick,

    We passed our OW exam thanks to you last year, we are planning to come back later this year, hope to meet you then.

  160. [img]/files/2011/10/guestbook/img-1054395058.jpg[/img]Hi,
    Nice to dive with you

  161. Hallo
    Vielen Dank für die vielen schönen, relaxten Tauchgänge die wir wieder mal bei Euch machen konnten.
    Da wir selbstständiges, individuelles Tauchen bevorzugen ist Chaloklum Diving einfach noch ein Geheimtipp. Man kann halt doch noch individuell tauchen! Die Staff sorgt bestens für einen und überhaupt, Persönlichkeit wird dort grossgeschrieben.
    Viele liebe Grüsse an alle – wir kommen sicherlich wieder !!!

  164. Hi guys,
    your website is so cool! Not so easy to forget such good time with you on your wonderfull island. Our first diving experience is unforgetable (only Thierry (the guy who talks too much) had already the magic PADI`s card). Hey stranger, if you want to dive in Kho Phan Ghan, do not hesitate a second => Chaloklum Diving!
    We hope to see you soon Nick & Chaloklum`s magic team…
    The three french frogs.(August 2002)

  165. Hi Nick, Brian, Lotte & Steph! Thanks for a great time, great tutoring (good luck with your Dive Master life B, L & S!) and super diving! And thanks for the pictures Nick, a cool thing to show our friends and colleagues!
    Cheers, Terje & Monica

  166. Hi! Lovly to see that your guestbook is working now! Guess who will soon go traveling in Thailand again? Perhaps we´ll do a stop by koh phangan? Isn´t Chris working for you anymore? Love Anette & Jens
    (the short girl and the very tall boy who took 2 dives with you neer koh tao and 1 nightdive their last day on koh phangan in the end of june…)

  167. Hi Michael, Nick, Lek & kids,
    my first working week after the nice time in Loklum is putted behind me and although this week was overfilled by regaining neglected topics I still feel quite relaxed. Let us thank you again for the nice diving trips, specially these to Ang Thong (which seemed for me to be the best I ever had at Greater Phangan), your successful special teaching endeavours for Oo and the warm companionship of your families and team.
    We wish a successful and healthy 2003 to all of you.

  168. happy new year nick lec and girls
    hope you had a good one.

  171. Hey, nice page,
    it brings me back there, and it is not so good for my mental state, here we’re right in the middle of a snow storm, its cold and slippery, it’s still beutiful to me but make me miss chaloklum’s beach, sun, palm trees, sand castles and fishes…
    There is an under ice diving class next semester, i could take it but i am not sure it would be as nice as in thailand!!!
    see you

  172. super-website!!! really inviting to go diving with you again!!!
    after having had the utmost excellent training with you and hence being able to dive the wild coral sea independantly for years after, we are happy to see that this page should give you more deseved buisness. hoping to be able to visit you for a plunge in march!
    good luck!

  173. Wonderfull website Nick, good to see Wangsi still looking the same. Be seeing you in 2003, hope you and crew are all keeping well. Cheers Duncan

  174. Hallo Jungs!!!
    Wunderschöne Bilder. Auch wenn ihr im monsoon wegschimmelt, ich beneide euch ein wenig. Hab ein tolles Tauchvideo zuhause, das hilft. Was ist denn mit den close-to-nature-Bungalows ganz ganz rechts?? Oder stehen die nicht mehr? Da gibts auf jeden Fall tolle Tiere all around. Liebe Grüße,

  175. Not much in terms of diving over here (nevertheless , a nice place), but the memories of Chaloklum are still fresh and I’d love to go back there one day . Your guestbook is a good way to keep in touch and maybe I’ll soon here from the rest of the crew ( in particular those Divemasters who qualified with me … ).
    Hasta pronto – as they say here -,

  176. hallo nick, michael and everybody who make diving with you guys so relaxed.

    Good to see your webpage. I wish you all the best and I´ll try to visit again and do a live aboard.

    All the best and succes.
